Jurong (Chinese: 句容; pinyin: Jùróng) is a county-level city under the administration of Zhenjiang, Jiangsu province, China.

Jurong was under the jurisdiction of Nanjing historically, but it was annexed to the Prefecture of Zhenjiang in 1950, then Zhenjiang in 1983. The county was converted into a county-level city in 1995.
